Vanessa Andrieux is one of the latest in a long line of talented French snowboard photographers that includes the likes of Scalp, Matt Georges and Jerome Tanon. She grew up outside the mountains, in the sunny south east of France, but moved straight to the Alps as soon as she finished studying. Though she was there to snowboard, Vanessa began documenting her fellow riders from behind the lens, and photography became her path to a dream career in the industry. Trips to Canada, Scandinavia, NZ and beyond have seen her keep up with the best men and women in the game, while her impeccable timing and punchy action shots – especially in powder – command immediate respect. A regular face on snowboarding’s biggest film shoots, Vanessa has had her images published in magazines and adverts across the globe.
